Banana Banana Bread

It’s been a baking kind of day.  One of my favorite things to do is make tasty treats in my kitchen as I not only enjoy the process I find it to be a big stress reliever in my life.  It’s a bonus that all my kids love my baking too!  Every day after school they ask for a snack of my own creation and by far their favorite is Banana Bread, loaded with Chocolate Chips!

I bake at least one loaf every week, sometimes two (like today) and a few weeks ago I actually made 4 loaves.  Three of them we ate and the fourth went to the neighbor’s house.  They love it too!  So here is my recipe for Banana Banana Bread, enjoy!
